Xeodrifter (Wii U) is otherwise the same game you loved on 3DS, including all pros and cons. You’re still fighting the same boss six times, and you’re still bravely trekking back with no health pickups after boss encounters. There’s still a little too much reliance on invisible passageways to find all the health and weapon upgrades. When I’m hugging every wall in hopes to fall through it, I’m not having a great time. The game’s difficulty curve is decidedly Kid Icarus-ian in that the early stuff is brutal but after you pick up a few heart tanks and weapon customizers (go big and fast or go home) things get much easier.
Xeodrifter simply feels like an incomplete adventure. Beaten in just four hours, the conclusion is as unsatisfying as the content. Although, I hope that Renegade Kid realise their missed opportunities and return to the stars to deliver a more grandiose sequel.
Xeodrifter is a fun little game that Nintendo fans should get a kick out of. We wish it was longer and had more visual variety, but those criticisms are mainly because we enjoyed our experience and wanted more of it. We'd love to see Renegade Kid revisit this world at some point in the future, and wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who hasn't played the 3DS version already.
